Noosa has welcomed a Mantra Resort to its popular Hastings Street strip with the opening of Mantra French Quarter Noosa following an extensive $5 million refurbishment.
Formerly the BreakFree French Quarter, a series of improvements have been carried out on the resort as part of the rebranding process including building a brand new Hastings Street reception and lobby to maximise its desirable location. The original lobby at the Halse Lane entrance has also completed an extensive upgrade, ensuring the arrival experience for Mantra guests sets a positive tone for their stay.
Over $1 million has also been spent to fully repaint and upgrade the resort’s exterior, and to refresh the pool area and gardens.
This investment complements the resort’s major refurbishment of One and Two Bedroom Apartments. Over $3 million has been spent on 68 one and two bedroom apartments to upgrade them to a deluxe status with improvements such as a full internal refit to maximise floor space, new kitchens and appliances, flat screen televisions and all new furniture and fittings.
One of the best value apartment hotels on Hastings Street – Noosa’s premier address for dining, shopping and direct beachside access – the resort is ideally situated just a short walk from the entrance to the National Park and Main Beach.
Mantra Group CEO, Bob East, said it was fitting that Mantra should have a resort in Noosa alongside the three Mantra properties in neighbouring Mooloolaba.
“The resort is looking great and the upgrades will bring an extra level of comfort and style that holiday-makers to Noosa have come to expect,” he said.
Noosa’s favourite local and Mantra brand ambassador, tennis legend Pat Rafter, said he was pleased to see the finished project.
“I was excited to hear that Mantra would be coming to Noosa – I’ve spent some time at the resorts in North Queensland and down at Kingscliff and look forward to seeing the Mantra name on Hastings Street.”
The new look Mantra French Quarter Noosa offers an excellent accommodation option for guests attending the upcoming Noosa Food & Wine Festival from 16 to 19 May and the ideal base for the Sunshine Coast’s variety of sporting events and music festivals.
Resort facilities include a heated lagoon style pool with two spas, a sauna, children’s wading pool, babysitting service and 24-hour reception.
